Workshop Details

When the Grandmothers speak, the Earth shall be healed. - Hopi Prophecy
In today’s challenging world, grandmothers can become a guiding force in healing our families, communities, and the planet. Now is the time to connect with other grandmothers, to share our challenges and celebrate our joys. It is time to explore what we can accomplish with each other’s support and in alliance. Your calling might be to enhance your relationship with your grandchild, to bring a needed service to your particular community, or to address a global challenge. 
In this workshop, we develop practical skills for effective communication between ourselves and the parents of our grandchildren. We explore our mutual challenge of aging in a society that underestimates our contributions. We create a ceremony to celebrate our rite of passage to conscious grandmothering, and we learn about activist grandmother organizations around the world as models for taking on personally meaningful projects. 
This gathering is not just for biological grandmothers, but for any wise elder who cares about the grandchildren of the world.
Recommended reading: Schaefer, Grandmothers Counsel the World; Gianturco, Grandmother Power.
